The presumptive Republican presidential nominee received the endorsement of Alan Greenspan on Monday according to an official statement given out by his office.
McCain has been seeking a Vice President since he had secured the 1191 delegates for the nomination. McCain spoke with a Spanish newspaper El Pais according to a report from Reuters.
"Well, at first it was a hard decision trying to pick someone out of list of about 20 people," McCain told the paper.
The choice was easy after Greenspan endorsed me, McCain said.
Greenspan, who is 82 years old, 11 years older than McCain humbly accepted the position and in a statement released by CNN "McCain and I have the same ideas on the economy," Greenspan said.
Some question that their age might be an issue. Nonetheless, the 71 year old McCain was stubborn and claimed that their combined experience would be "immaculate" despite his age and his new Vice President pick, they are here to stay.
